The buggy as an all-rounder
Buying a buggy: This is what you should consider!
Buying a buggy is an important decision for many parents. After all, the buggy is used daily - or even several times a day. And not only the little ones should feel comfortable in the buggy, but also the parents pushing it. There are many factors to consider when choosing the perfect stroller category for you and your family:
Size: the first thing you should consider is the size of the stroller. Do you need a compact buggy that folds easily for transport, or do you need a larger buggy with more storage space?
Safety: certification according to DIN EN 1888 or an award with the GS mark guarantees that the buggy meets the latest safety requirements in terms of material, workmanship, stability, braking properties and more. In addition, a safety bar and a 5-point safety harness help to secure your child in the buggy. In addition, an integrated UV protection is beneficial.
Features: Another important factor is the features of the stroller. Some buggies have adjustable backrests, with recline function that is perfect for naps on long rides. Others have small swivel and lockable front wheels that make it easier to maneuver in tight spaces.
The Tires & Wheels: A stroller with pneumatic tires is a bit heavier, but runs smoother, especially if you prefer uneven terrain. For everyday walks, buggies with additional suspension are preferable. Sidewalks are easier to walk on and the stroller runs more smoothly if you like to walk in the woods or on dirt roads. An alternative to the buggy can also be the buggy stroller. Often called a jogger, the stroller has larger wheels and extra suspension. A padded seat also provides more comfort. This means that trips off the road and sidewalks are no longer a problem.
Folding size: make sure that the stroller is foldable and has a small folding size. This way there is enough space in the trunk of your car for luggage, diaper bag or toys.
Push bar: For more comfort, the push handles should be adjustable so that the stroller can be ergonomically adjusted to the body size and both parents can carry their offspring comfortably and back-friendly in the stroller.

Why buggy instead of stroller?
When choosing between a buggy and a stroller, there are some important factors to consider:
First of all, buggies are usually much cheaper than strollers or station wagons. This is especially important for families on a budget or expecting multiple children.
Also, buggies are usually lighter and more compact than all stroller categories, so they are easier to transport and store.
A stroller is usually best for babies and toddlers who can't yet walk long distances, while a buggy is better for older toddlers and preschoolers who can already walk on their own but still need a break now and then.
Consider the terrain you'll be walking on. If you'll be traveling a lot on uneven or unpaved surfaces, a stroller is probably a better choice because it gives your child a smoother ride.
When is it okay to put a baby in a stroller?
If your baby is now too big for the bassinet and babywearing is barely possible, then it's time for a stroller. As soon as your baby's back is strong enough and he or she has learned to sit independently, then he or she is ready for the first rides in the buggy. Most babies learn to sit after about 6 - 10 months. Buggies are unsuitable for newborns because their spine cannot yet absorb shocks during the ride. Ideal are buggies with reclining function, where the backrest can be adjusted in several steps or steplessly up to the reclining position.
Note: Most buggies can be used until your child reaches a weight of about 15 kg. This means that the buggy is also suitable for older children.
How long does child sit in buggy?
WHO recommends that children up to the age of 4 should not sit for more than an hour at a time. Therefore, it is important to choose a stroller with an adjustable backrest that is comfortable for your child and has a good suspension system. By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your child enjoys the ride in their stroller while staying safe and healthy.
Baby carriage stroller safety criteria.
Child safety is especially important to parents when buying a stroller. The children's buggy should not only have an attractive design, but also meet the latest safety requirements. With the abundance of models on offer, it is worth taking a closer look. So these are the points you should consider when buying:
Certification according to DIN EN 1888 or
an award with the TÜV or GS test seal.
Explanation: DIN EN 1888 regulates the safety requirements for strollers in terms of materials, parking brakes, stability, locks and handles or pushers. The institution, e.g. TÜV Süd, tests strollers and buggies according to these requirements and then issues corresponding product certificates. You should definitely pay attention to these when buying, because they give you a first indication of how safe the stroller really is.
In addition, various tests are regularly carried out by independent institutes such as Stiftung Warentest on different models in order to compare data. You can find the results of these tests in well-known consumer magazines and on the Internet - so it's worth looking around before you buy.
